VIDEO: How doctors turn a penis into a vagina

This fascinating video reveals how doctors perform gender reassignment surgery

It’s one of the most fascinating surgical procedures of all time.

And now, thanks to the European Society of Urology, we have been offered an insight into how male-to-female gender reassignment surgery works.

They have created a short animated video, which details the procedures undertaken by very skilled surgeons.

Be warned; if you’re squeamish, then this probably isn’t going to be your cup of tea.

Check it out:

It’s very impressive, isn’t it?

The video begins with a surgeon’s hand slicing open the scrotum and removing the testicles, before removing the tip of the penis to create a clitoris.

The surgeon then uses the shaft and the scrotum to create the labia and vaginal canal.

Obviously these are only the surgical changes; additional hormone therapy is required to make the variety of other changes desired in the body.

However this surgery should give a woman everything she needs for a healthy sex life.
